smooth sailing.

smooth sailing.

look at miss fancy pants pinwheel sampler hanging out over at connecting threads.

smooth sailing.

here's a closer look.

now y'all know i'm not a red, white & blue fan, but i love this version.
i think it's because it doesn't scream americana.
and i really like the grey and how the quilt has a modern feel to it.

it's always exciting to see someone else's version of something you designed. <--which is why i love it when y'all email me pics or post pics in the ps i quilt: sew & tell flickr group.

for those that are interested, smooth sailing pinwheel sampler kits are available HERE.
{pssst: the price is amazing!!!}

so what do y'all think of this version of pinwheel sampler?!?!
inquiring minds want to know.
*wink, wink*

note: although i'd like to, i can't take credit for the photography.
these pics were taken from the connecting threads website.

lollipop 1 -

lollipop 2 -

lollipop 3 -

lollipop 4 -

lollipop 5 -

lollipop 6 -

and that, ladies & gents, was lindsey's first lollipop.
i personally love pic #4.

oh and for the record, i call these suckers, not lollipops.
i just couldn't have a post named "sucker" and then show a pic of my baby.
that just seemed downright wrong. lol.

note: these were taken rather quickly with my iphone.
so please don't judge the pic quality too harshly.

geared for guys.

welcome to the geared for guy book tour y'all :)

geared for guys is an awesome book by my friend emily herrick.
{whaddup emily. xoxo.}

i love that she made a dudes book.
see i have all kinds of dudes in my life.
a hubby. two sons. brothers. nephews. and hubby's bachelor bff that is always around.

even though i know i'm capable of making a quilt geared towards guys, i'm lazy.
i wanted someone else to do it for me.
insert emily.

she gave me 8 great guy quilts to choose from.
the only problem is that they pretty much all fit the guys in my life.
so it looks like i still have some decisions to make.

but first up . . .

odd ball.

i really, really wanna make this "odd ball" quilt.
i love it. just the way it is.
BUT i might make it orange & brown since the hubby is a cleveland browns fan.
or i might just leave it orange & grey since we painted our living room grey.
decisions, decisions.

maybe y'all can help me.
leave a comment telling me which y'all would make: orange & grey OR orange & brown.
one lucky ps i quilt reader will win their very own copy of quilts for guys.
{winner will be drawn saturday.}


and please, go visit pink chalk studios tomorrow for another chance to win.

gearing up.

01 May 2012

gearing up.

it's that time again folks.

the time where apparently i can't get enough done, my to do list is the size of texas and i feel like i haven't slept in days.

i've been living on starbucks {& mountain dew}, utilizing my very trusty sample makers and probably driving my family insane.

yep. i'm gearing up for market.
so yall stay tuned.
